Calendar of FC Barcelona

The FC Barcelona inciará the pre-season 2022-2023 in less than ten days and few things -or any- have moved in the staff of the first team, further of the exit of Philippe Coutinho (Aston Villa). The club has a lot of folders of 'urgent' on the table and the sales are the most important to this point. It will be key that the Barcelona can close some movement in the next days that generate income and, besides, free space in the changing room.

And it is that, although all the focuses are put in the possible signings of Robert Lewandowski, Jules Koundé or Bernardo Silva, the Barça still has to do the duties. The Barcelona warned does more than a month to four players that did not have they of face to the next season: Riqui Puig, Samuel Umtiti, Martin Braithwaite and Òscar Mingueza. Any has gone out and have few (or any) offers to abandon the Camp Nou this summer.

In the last hours, in France 'L'Instrument' informed that the history of Umtiti in the Barça was near to finish and that the player wanted to return to the Olympique of Lyon, where gave his first steps in the elite. Nevertheless, the French group is not interested in his traspaso. The Girona also has showed interested in the central French, but there is not an offer of by half.

With Umtiti the main problem is his little physical reliability and the problems in the knee that has dragged from 2018. In the Barça has become a 'descarte' and fixed in the bench from does a few years, but in the last season was when more difficult went back his situation, put only contested ninety minutes in all the course and was 'KO' three months by an injury.

Exits complicated

In the case of Riqui Puig, there is not formal interest of some team, further to having sounded for the Celtic of Vigo. The midfield player knows that it has to leave this summer if it wants to follow developing as footballer and give the big jump to the national selection, but there are not a lot of possible destinations. What himself seem likely is that it continue playing in Spain and no descarta that it can go out in a loan, put his dream keeps on being to triumph in the Barça.

The blaugrana, of any way, want that his exits seal in the next week, but to day of today seems something impossible because there are not negotiations encarriladas. They aim to be operations that will take in closing and the option that they remain (as it already happened in 2020 and 2021) is on the table... Because, to final of accounts, are very comfortable in the Barça.
